Supporting Our Students

During this holiday season, we are thankful for the generosity of the Charger community. Contributions to the University of New Haven provide scholarships for students with need, support our world-class faculty, and fund academic and experiential programs that teach our students the skills they need to succeed. As we honor the past 100 years, and look ahead to building the next 100, we are grateful for your continued support.

Once a Charger, Always a Charger!

The year 2020 was an extraordinary Centennial year for the University of New Haven. While it unfolded differently than expected, as it did for so many people, we still made time to come together virtually to celebrate the rich history that makes the University the special place it is today. And through the generosity of thousands of alumni and friends, we successfully closed the first-ever comprehensive campaign in University history, the Charger Challenge, which raised over $135M against our original goal of $100M.

We are grateful and honored to share below some stories from the Charger Challenge Campaign, and we hope that you take immense pride at being a part of Charger Nation. Thank you for your support!
